Asta von Parpart LCl (R). rrr/fff/2. Geschwind, 1909. [Provenance SJHRG]
This Multiflora hybrid has long been classed with the Ramblers. We have moved it because it is, and has always been known to be an excellent rebloomer. It has much in common in look with the Multiflora Ramblers like 'De la Grifferaie', and can build to a sizeable plant. Flowers are the most delightful small, old-fashioned, flat, fully double things, deep carmine pink to light purple with a sweet fragrance. A great repeater to add to the old rose garden.

([provenance:] San Jose Heritage Rose Garden). This climbing form of the famous Lafayette returns at last to charm another generation of rose growers; rich, rose-red flowers of cupped form, in small clusters. Excellent rebloom.

BRITISH QUEEN "BEALES' THE BRIDE", HT. Good, reliable rebloom. Outstanding fragrance. Compact and bushy. . THE BRIDE was a white sport of CATHERINE MERMET. This rose has a different look: globular, blooms of rolled-back petals and silky substance of white blushed with pink; growth compact and flowers often nodding. We are convinced that this is the original BRITISH QUEEN.
